           “Drawing to an Inside Straight is the clear-eyed story of an intellectual woman of  Jewish background coming of age in the roughhouse American West and rediscovering her heritage. Jodi Varon tells it eloquently, and resolves it beautifully.”—William Kittredge, author of Hole in the Sky

           “Beautifully written. . . . This wonderful book captures a unique historical and cultural moment in intense and vivid prose.” —Trudy Lewis, author of The Bones of Garbo
